Abstract: 

The transportation problem is one of the earliest applications of linear programming problems. In the literature, several methods are proposed for solving transportation problems in fuzzy environment but in all the proposed methods, the parameters are normal fuzzy numbers. In this paper, a general fuzzy transportation problem is discussed. In the proposed method, transportation cost, availability and demand of the product are represented by symmetric triangular fuzzy numbers. We develop fuzzy version of Vogel’s algorithms for finding fuzzy optimal solution of fuzzy transportation problem. A numerical example is given to show the efficiency of the method.
